Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “The coronavirus debate crystalized the fundamental differences between Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders' approach to politics”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
Both former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders managed to turn the coronavirus outbreak into a supporting argument for their presidential campaigns on Sunday night.
During the one-on-one debate on CNN without a studio audience, much of the evening was dominated by how each candidate would respond to the virus that has already killed more than 6,000 people worldwide.
Biden kept coming back to his experience handling the Ebola outbreak from the White House during the Obama administration, and how he could immediately steady the ship and unify not only the country but the global community to mitigate the damage.
Sanders outlined how he has unfortunately been proven right on the need to enact universal health care and paid leave as coronavirus ravages the American public and economy.
"There are people who watching this program tonight who are saying, 'I'm not feeling well. Should I go to the doctor? But I can't afford to go to the doctor,'" Sanders said. "'What happens if I am sick? It's going to cost thousands of dollars for treatment. Who's going to feed my kids?'
